Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Curriculum and Activities

The Wolfram Spring Program is an intensive week focusing on a variety of academic activities. Our unique program design uses active learning to support students with independent and collaborative work.

Learning Wolfram Language

Attending the program will give you a fast-paced, engaging introduction to coding in Wolfram Language, as well as computational thinking and problem-solving skills. You will be guided through exercises, coding challenges and a host of mini projects to hone your skills, grow your confidence and solidify your understanding of computer science principles.

Computational X

As you learn to code in Wolfram Language, you will engage in a variety of explorations and challenges applying computation to different subject areas. From computational physics to computational poetry, you will build a portfolio of mini projects showing what you have learned.

Specialist Lectures

Throughout the program, there will be lectures on a variety of topics given by Wolfram Research employees and guests from universities and organizations around the world. These topics could range from natural language processing and computational farming to computational image analysis and machine learning with finance data.

Social Activities

Outside of your academic activities, you will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of social experiences to help you build connections with your peers. Social activities include video game design workshops, comedy skit writing, casual sports, special interest discussions and trivia tournaments.

Sample Schedule

Each day at the program will be slightly different, with a higher balance of teaching time at the beginning and increased activities time as you gain confidence. The program runs from 9am to 6pm, and students need to bring their own lunch.
